Effect Increases the wearer's evasion

The cloak of evasion, also known as the clothes hiding and evade cloak, is a recurring piece of clothing in the Dragon Quest series. This garb increases the frequency of evading attacks from the usual 164 (~1.56%) to 18 (12.5%) (see below for exceptions.)


The cloak of evasion is a long-sleeved, green tunic with light blue trim which reaches down to the wearer's ankles and includes a hood. The shade of green varies in each game, ranging from light green to dark forest green. There is a jewel (blue in earlier games, red in later) in the front and runes sewn into the fabric, which aid in evasiveness. To complete the look, a light blue sash is tied around the waist. The cloak is often a mid-ranking clothing designed for spellcasters and other characters who cannot wear heavier armor.
